[This Day In Horror] Robert Englund Born On June 6, 1947

We’re starting a new series of posts where we – on occasion – will highlight something significant that occurred in the yesteryears of a specific date. It won’t always be birthdays, but today we are noting that Robert Englund was born on this date in 1947.

Without him the following films and TV shows would have been irretrievably different, and in some cases they might not have existed at all. A Nightmare On Elm Street Parts 1-6, Wes Craven’s New Nightmare, Freddy Vs. Jason, The Phantom Of the Opera, C.H.U.D. 2: Bud The Chud, “Freddy’s Nightmares”, The Adventures Of Ford Fairlane, Night Terrors, Wishmaster, Urban Legend, Strangeland, Hatchet, Behind The Mask: The Rise Of Leslie Vernon, Zombie Strippers and many, many… many more! Happy Birthday Robert!
